A city employee carries a bag of cocaine to an incinerator at a police base in Lima, Peru, a small part of the more than 4 tons of drugs seized in March and April - including cocaine, marijuana and heroin - that were burned there.

Now, the U.S. is helping the Peruvian government fight the same battles. (Associated Press)
